A new online tool from the United States Interagency Council on Homelessness can help you find strategies recognized for their effectiveness or promise in the fight against homelessness. The Solutions Database includes more than 50 programs and practices, ranging from emerging approaches that seem likely to produce good results to evidence-based practices that have been well-documented and implemented in a variety of locations and settings.
You can filter your search by keyword or by selecting a specific population (the list includes youth), a state or an objective from the federal government’s Opening Doors strategic plan to end homelessness.
USICH will update the database as information becomes available. To submit a resource for consideration, email the USICH communications staff.
